Called “three
of the finest folk violinists anywhere” by The Washington Post,
Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting
variations. Fiddlers Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (France)
and André Brunet (Canada)
showcase a fascinating juxtaposition of international and individual styles.

Sold-out tours and
standing ovations give testimony to the electricity and excitement generated by
the group. Along with acclaimed
guitarist Nicholas Quemener (France), the
quartet combines their talents, musical traditions, and spontaneous humour for
an evening of dazzling energy and subtle grace. These traditional masters showcase their regional repertoires and
together conjure an experience of breathtaking performances
